I am very glad to say that I was nearly (but not quite) on board the "Affray" for her fateful trip. I wasn't in the submarine service, but a newly qualified member of SBS. My name went on the notice board as part of the number to practice access to and from submarines with canoes. As I had already arranged a weekend's visit to my then girlfriend (now married over 55 yrs.) up in Liverpool. I managed to swap with a mate. The rest is history. ... To finish on a lighter note. Did you know there are only two types of marines in the Royal Navy? Submarines and Royal Marines and they both carry matelots!! ..Bingalau..
Psssssss! I'm in the cupboard and the keys on top.
 
skyvet and pie.thatcher, I joined the Cachalot in Singers in June 68 as the LRO was only in her a few months then went to Amphion to bring her home.
 
I'll give your regards to Parson and Co. who were in her then when we meet up at the Diesel Dino's Reunion in August. They are bound to remember you

I keep in touch with Jan the gunlayer from Aeneas, he always attends the Diesel Boat renunion, I have tried to make it a couple of times, but it clashes with Dartmoor Folk Festival which is held here every year.
